Awareness is the first key to the definition of mindfulness for me. When we become aware of what we are doing, we are conscious of what we want to nurture in our life and what we want to eliminate. Then, we move beyond awareness to purposefully paying attention in a continual manner of each moment. The final key component of the definition is that we do this non-judgmentally – we don’t label the moment as good or bad or with any other words. It is what it is and it is perfect.
The more times you can pause during your day and be mindful, the more you will grow your mindfulness muscle.
Life is a gift, make each day and each moment precious.
Pay attention to how often you are mindful during the day.
How can you develop more mindfulness into your life?
